Residents gather signatures against school board member


BROWNSVILLE, Texas – Over 3,000 signatures have been collected in opposition to a Brownsville ISD school board member. Residents are planning to present a petition to superintendent, Dr. René Gutiérrez in hopes of bringing awareness to their frustration with Precinct 2 board member, Erasmo Castro.

Castro was recently arrested and charged for Driving While Intoxicated. It’s unclear what action, if any, the superintendent can make after receiving the petition. Because Castro is an elected official, and not an employee of the district.
